If you have the chance, you should definitely take a stroll through the Allegheny West neighborhood and check out the many of the mansions and luxurious homes that are still standing. During your stroll, you and your pup will be able to use the many sidewalks throughout the neighborhood. Some of these are well-maintained or newly paved, but other areas may be a bit uneven and cracked due to the neighborhood's age. 


Thankfully, Allegheny West is a relatively flat neighborhood, unlike many of Pittsburgh's suburban neighborhoods. There are a few very steady and relatively unnoticed inclines, but nothing that would cause your daily walks to be too strenuous or difficult for you or your pup! 

The boundaries of Allegheny West include West North Avenue, West Ohio Street, and Ridge Avenue to the north, Brighton Road and Merchant Street to the east, the 65th Infantry Division Memorial Highway to the south, and Allegheny Avenue to the west.
